. let's check in with tara. >> well, probably another half an hour until things are back to normal on the island. as christian mentioned the coroner arrived. also we want to mention b.a.r.t. delays. passengers are experiencing a ten-minute delay at the richmond situation due to a medical emergency. you can see that the bay bridge toll plaza is very extensive. you will probably be waiting about 10, 15 minutes to get into information this morning. up next, we have a look at highway 24 through la fayette. you can see it is a little bit hey zu out there. not nearly as bad as the fog -- hazy out there. not nearly as bad as the fog earlier. here's steve. >>> thank you, tara. cloudy skies or mostly cloudy skies. the clouds have lifted. there could be some pockets -- the -- there could be some pockets of it but nothing like yesterday. but kind of a gray day. tomorrow morning we'll have rain. nothing you haven't seen or handled before. it will be a fast-moving system. it will set the stage for what comes in thursday into sunday. the wind will cavel off. could get some gusts 30, 50 miles an

christmas time. >>> all right. want to check in with tara filling in for sal. tara, it was crystal clear for most of my drive in from danville through walnut creek. but i know there's a lot of other heavy fog. >> that's right. and those advisories are in effect for the bridges. some other parts will be lifted at 9:00 this morning. the dumbarton bridge is the only bridge not under advisory but it is still foggy on the west side of the span. so be careful. this is 101 in san jose. tail lights are headed to the airport. if we head up to emeryville at the macarthur maze, you can see the fog we've been talking about. we can't see anything and the bay bridge toll plaza is much the same way. that's where lorraine blanco has been out all moneying warning about the fog advisory. and la fayette, westbound traffic on the left-hand side as you make your way to the caldecott tunnel and the hills, it looks like fall but not too many delays. not too bad. >>> here's steve. >> thank you, tara. clear for a few. other areas, boy, i tell you it is foggy. twitter nation alive and well with a lot of fog repor

they have worries for rain in the forecast, tara? >> reporter: that's right. this was once a grassy field and now it looks like a martian landscape and it looks odd and we have mud up to nine feet in certain spots. we will give you an idea just how deep it is. if you look at this pole it is practically buried and if you pan over you can see how tall these individual poles are and that's because of a water-main which burst from where we are standing. they got a 20-foot wide 2-foot very vicinity. it -- crevice. they got cars and shovels to pull the mud out and they will file with the city or their car insurance companies for insurance. >> why couldn't you go to work? >> i couldn't turn on the car and i couldn't walk out on the mud as well because it was three feet deep. >> reporter: now the big concern is the weather. with rain expected in the forecast, some worry about the stability of this hillside which hits the avenue. but with waste water resources, they tell us there is no danger and still the city plans on taking precaution clearing storm drains and we will tell you what is to major.
this if you break through that fog, low- to-mid 60s. here is tara. >>> all right, steve this is a look at 680 and you can see traffic is moving along fairly at this hour and up next we have a heavy fog advisory for the bay bridge and you can see folks headed into the city and definitely give yourself some extra time. lorraine blanco is out there. how are people looking are they taking it slowly? >> yes, they are not taking it that slowly and the fog has not let up since we have been out here. just behind me is the toll plaza and you can't see it at all. now traffic is moving, moving rather slowly here and visibility is very low. here is a look at some iphone video as we head down in el cerrito tow. even -- el cerrito. in oakland you could not read the signs and driving around the east bay is a challenge this morning. we also shot video near berkeley and that could be tricky and today drivers are breaking more in heavy fog. advisories to tell you about, there is an advisory on the bay bridge as well as the san mateo and the venetia bridge and you will want to give yourself some extra time, slo

about three hours ago. and the cbs 5 reporter tara tells us, the first results of the election are in. >> reporter: that's right. where the first votes have come in, it is a tie. a little disconverting to the folks who were afraid this race would turn out to be a tie. meantime, the candidates are working it right down to the very last minute. they're in the most competitive states today, knowing that every vote counts. and it really does. voters in new hampshire cast their ballots at midnight. and if their votes are any indication, tuesday could be a very long day. >> this has never happened before. we have a tie. five votes each. >> reporter: president obama and mitt romney buzzed through battleground states monday on a final push for votes on the eve of election day. his stops included opening acts from bruce springsteen and jay- z. he told supporters romney's campaign is a greatest hits collection of failed policies. >> the top-down policies that caused the mess we've been fighting our way out of for four years, we're moving forward to a future... >> reporter: the president wrappe
